  3. I use LINQPad on three different computers. It would be very helpful to be able to export the preferences and connections from one so they can be imported into another instance.

  4. I am using Linqpad in diffrent machines. Was wondering is there anyway to sync "My Queries" through some service. Or may be we can use SkyDrive/Azure/Amazon kind of thing?

  5. I'd like a method (maybe exposed via the LINQPad object) to change the data context to any of those present in the 'Add Connection' pane.

    As we know linq cannot perform cross database (cross data context) joins. To cope with this, in Visual Studio, I often use one data context, obtain data into a table or array, then switch to another data context, obtain more data, then fuse the result sets.

    This is simple enough in VS, but in LINQPad I cannot work out how to change the data context via code in C# Statements mode; the only way I…

  8. I just bought the autocompletion but I'm disappointed by the fact that LinqPad catches key combinations that I use to enter polish national characters (namely ALT-S). I'd like to be able to turn off this keyboard shortcut or redefine it. The ALT-something shortcuts are very risky as Windows often uses them for the national characters. And it's annoying when instead of just entering a letter into the editor window it activates SQL panel. PLEASE fix it.

  11. It would be great if LP could support source control integration using the SCC-compatible source control interface (Ex. Beyond Compare 3).

  13. I am so used to the 'save on compile' option in Visual Studio, that I can't get into the habit of saving in Linqpad until I have finished or closing linqpad (and since Linqpad is so useful it never gets closed).

    This has resulted in me losing work several times.

    Would it be hard to add an option to save files to the temporary folder when a query is run.
    Don't need there is a need to attempt to recover the files, as I can go looking for them.

    Thanks

  14. It would be nice to have the tab name be the name of the table when running the pre-defined right-click queries instead of query n.

  15. For people who end up having more than just a few connections, it would be very handy to be able to group connections by server (perhaps default to the server name but also allow the user to replace it with an alias).

  17. This will be handy when using LinqPad to bring back Simple data and will avoid using MS Word and Copy / Paste. I use LinqPad for bringing back the results of massive varchar fields because SSMS doesn't.

  18. It would be nice if the tabs had icons showing if they were SQL or code files. If you have mixed tabs of both, it would be much faster to find the query you're looking for.

  19. The Expression Tree Visualizer is a fantastic tool to shed some light on exactly what happens when an expression tree is invoked. It's especially useful when building your own from scratch, and some visibility on how LINQ does it would be a real bonus!

    Are you aware that you can call .Dump() on an expression? The output is not exactly the same as the Expression Tree Visualizer, but it conveys much of the same information. Is there anything missing from what you see that you’d like added? Or anything that you’d like changed?

  20. It would be handy if LINQPad closed to the system try so that it could be get around all the time. It's a great lightweight tool for trying out things.
